Photo help

I have a white 2017 rubicon 4 door on order with black hard top. I am planning on installing my JCR crusader bumpers on it, they are black right now. I was considering painting them red, would it look stupid?

So it would be a white jeep, black top and fender flares with red bumpers, thoughts?

Do it!!! Its a jeep, its supposed to be fun and "out there" looking. I ran lime green sliders on my last JK which was Crush (orange). I got a million compliments.

Be bold.

Who cares what others think. If you like it then run with it.

Rattle can the bumper. If you like keep. If not, cover that shit up with a new color.

Wheels will be stock for now, I have some black wheels that I considered painting red too. There's plenty of white jeeps, but I haven't seen any with red bumpers and stuff.

I like the red bumpers with color matching wheels idea. Matching sliders would be nice!

I was hoping someone had some photoshop skills that could show me what that'll look like. Also thinking of a red screen behind the grill.
